Lecture: Art for All - the Regional Art Gallery in Victorian Britain by Giles Waterfield

| Warehouse Theatre

From 1865 to the first World War, art museums were created in all the cities and most of the towns in Britain. This lecture considers why they were set up, who supported them, the types of art they acquired and their extraordinary popularity - and compares the way they were run to the state of the descendants today. Giles Waterfield, curator, writer and lecturer is an authority on the history of museums and his publications include: Palaces of Art and Art for the People.
